The Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes and Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) are working in partnership to administer the KidSport Program. Applications for 2018 are currently being accepted.

KidSport assists children with Healthcare or Pensioner Concession Cards and/or families experiencing genuine hardship within the Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes to participate in sport and recreational activities. KidSport provides financial assistance of up to $150 per child per calendar year.

Families who do not have a concession card but are experiencing significant financial hardship, as a result of an unforeseen situation, may apply for a financial exception through a KidSport Financial Assessor.

The KidSport Officer can help locate suitable clubs and groups for approved applicants. Children aged 5-18 years can apply for the grant which is paid directly to the registered KidSport club they have selected to join.

From 1 August 2017, KidSport vouchers will only cover club registration fees. Uniform/core equipment will no longer be eligible items within the $150 a year voucher.
